Majo0od's answer is the way I always prefer time-sensitive things to be displayed. It seems weird if something is listed as "[Today's date] [Current time, +3 hours]" if the event is simply 3 hours away, yet I don't want something 14 and a half days from now saying "348 hours from now" either. I'd suggest formatting due dates as Majo0od suggest by default, ...
Why not use both of those solutions? Facebook does this by how relevant the time is to you such as: A post that was put up today will show: But once the post becomes older, it will do this: So in your case, you could use both depending on how relevant it is. If the due date is a month from now you can go into details: "Do the dishes - Monday, ...
If I set a date to be Monday the 1st of September 2014 at 12:59 PM, will this actually be handled as tuesday very early morning? No, this would be treated as Monday afternoon, just before 1pm. Early morning on Tuesday would be Tuesday 12:59am in 12-hour format or 00:59 in 24-hour format. And while it's true that people might also describe that as ...

It's a whole different thing if you're e.g. providing the running order of a music festival. Saturday, 2am there, is almost always technically Sunday, 2am, but this isn't ...

A subtle reminder or a hint like "2am 'Saturday' is technically Sunday, but you already know." would be a great help for all parties involved.
Most People will know this when dealing with calendar. Notice is not necessary i believe. I would suggest to use Tomorrow at 02:00 am / Tomorrow early morning. 00:00 - 09:00 - EARLY MORNING 09:00 - 12:00 - MORNING 12:00 - 16:00 - AFTERNOON 16:00 - 20:00 - EVENING 20:00 - 23:59 - NIGHT and so on. This will give a clear idea for the user.
